You’ve heard of the old saying that “time is money”. Well, nowhere is this more important than in the realm of Manufacturing. Most products today are made in automated factories. Many are being run around the clock.
According the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), U.S. Manufacturing still accounts for almost 9% of total employment in the United States. In areas such as our home state of Connecticut, this number is 10%.
Whether you’re a small manufacturer serving a regional market or a large company serving the needs of OEM’s on an International scope, Quast Media has the digital technologies that can assist you in providing sales/marketing support, after the sales service/support, employee training, or manufacturing floor efficiencies.

Here are a few ways that Alternative Reality applications can be an integral part of your process:
Allowing Data Collection to become “visual”: Companies go to great expense to gather data in the manufacturing process,. MR (mixed reality) has the ability to better connect workers on the factory floor with important information that can be displayed as “visual overlays”. This process will enhance machine efficiency as well as increase quality control.
Continuing Education and Training: Training in a “mixed reality” environment increases safety standards since workers are practicing in a simulated environment. Additionally, because the training is done in a virtual environment, expensive-to-operate standalone training facilities become obsolete. Companies can save on transporting workers to these training facilities, wear-and-tear on the equipment used, and still create a learning environment that is far superior to traditional classroom methods. The added benefit of MR training is the ability to retain all of the benefits associated with real-world “learn-by-doing” curriculum.
Create Mixed Reality instructions: What if that IKEA shelving unit you just bought had a way for you to interact with an overlay of assembly instructions? And also, better still – how will it look in your home, and will it fit in your desired space? These are just some of the questions that Mixed reality applications are poised to provide answers for.
There are many other ways that Mixed Reality applications will soon be enhancing the manufacturing process as well as end products produced – To begin to develop a customized strategy that maximizes and better monetizes your company’s manufacturing processes, contact us today.
